  • The entrance to Marine Corps base Camp Pendleton in Oceanside California

The search continued late Friday for eight service members who went missing following a deadly accident during a training exercise off San Clemente Island, officials said.

All the marines involved were assigned to the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, which is based at Camp Pendleton, the largest US Marine base on the West Coast of the United States, between Orange and San Diego counties.

"There is an inherent danger because every once in a while those things will take on water and if they do you've got a lot of marines trapped in a vehicle and it's going to be very hard to get everyone out safely", Kempfer said.

"We train like we fight an obviously like its very nature the armed forces is a very risky business that's what we do", said Kemper.

Search and rescue efforts were underway with support from the Navy and Coast Guard following the Assault Amphibious Vehicle accident.

One Marine was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla where he died.

At least one Marine is dead and eight are apparently missing after a training accident Thursday off the California coast. He was pronounced dead Thursday at a hospital in San Diego.

Alex Dupont n’est plus !
Ancien joueur de Dunkerque et Hazebrouck, Alex Dupont avait été élu entraîneur français de l'année 2000, selon France Football . L'homme est décédé ce 1er août, à l'âge de 66 ans, d'une crise cardiaque, comme l'annoncent nos confrères de La Voix du Nord .

The name of the deceased Marine is being withheld for 24 hours so that the family can be informed, NBC News reported. "They've been in use by the Marines since the early 1970s and are currently set to be replaced by the amphibious combat vehicle, now in development".

The vehicle is created to hold up to 24 people with 280 pounds of equipment each, Lt. Gen. Osterman said.

The Marine Expeditionary Force is the Marine Corps' main warfighting organization. Three Navy MH-60 helicopters are involved, as well as a Coast Guard helicopter and cutter.

Osterman noted that with half of the personnel recovered so far, the members aboard were able to egress and that their flotation devices had worked.

The Navy and Coast Guard were discussing ways to reach the sunken vehicle to get a view inside it, Osterman said.

A Marine Expeditionary Unit is comprised of about 2,200 Marines and sailors and broken out into four elements. Marine Corps officials said Friday they did not know the age or other details of the one that sank.
